teenagers.between vocation and the desires of the age.forms of resistance against the pressures. an Orthodox seminary circle who reflects Romanian school system in many aspects. and the compromises. good music. admirable performances. the touch of personal experiences of the director at his first movie. and the trip across a world of survive. the easy verdict - a film against the Church. in fact, only the exploration of the geography of an age, with its clear perception about good and bad, with its aspects of weakness and idealism and a priest teacher and his recipe of successful control. the basic observation - new proof of the force of performance from Vlad Ivanov. the second - first step of a great generation of actors. and the ironic expression about appearances and expectations.not the last - the bitter humor. and the tension who remains good spice for a film who has the virtue to escape to the expectations.
